AIS Transponder
ECN chartplotter/PC etc that runs AIS

Not necessary:
SSB radio

Remember two boats have been lost doing transatlantic this year, one at least looks like it was hit by a ship. You really need AIS its the only thing that can show ships where you are as opposed to showing only you where ships are.
